Once Upon a Time.... Fairy Tale Units are not only an engaging unit of study but also aligned with the Common Core. These two sheets allow students to discover the elements that make a Fairy Tale a Fairy Tale and record their findings as they read a variety to texts.
The first sheet defines the elements of a Fairy Tale. While the second chart allows students to record elements they find in Fairy Tales you read as a class or ones they read on their own.
I would recommend coping the sheets back to back so that students can refer to the elements page before they record their findings.
